Picked up this when I was on The Oklahoman website a few minutes ago:

Excerpts from the current story on The Oklahoman website:

Monday, investigators were seen questioning Hinrichs' neighbors who lived in Parkview Apartments on Sooner Drive, southeast of Lindsey Street and Stinson Avenue.

Norman police Sgt. George Mauldin, head of the department's bomb squad, said his team removed a "significant quantity of highly explosive material" from Apt. 506B.

The material, which he described only as "a solid," was detonated safely at the police firing range on Jenkins Avenue, south of State Highway 9.

Had the explosives detonated inside Hinrichs' apartment, Mauldin said, "damage would have been contained to that building. It may have blown out windows on buildings beyond that, but there would not have been structural damage."

FBI officials have refused to name Hinrichs' roommate.

Welch said he didn't know the roommate's name and had not seen him since early Sunday when residents were told to leave the building.

Ali Shakroun, who lives in an adjacent building, said he knew the roommate well enough to say hello to him but did not know his name.

Investigators at the scene identified Hinrichs from his wallet taken from his pants recovered at the scene.

Official identification will take more time, said Kevin Rowland, spokesman for the state medical examiner's office.

Identification will be made using DNA, Rowland said.

"There is no time frame on when the (official) identification will be made," Rowland said.

Investigators have refused to address whether the student may have intended to enter the football stadium.

Keep ALL of this SPECIFIC REPORT in your "file of things that the press will never mention again because it isn't politically correct"

See, it sounds like the roommate (who was distinctive enough known by a near-by Muslim!) fled the area immediately...

Was stupid enough to leave bomb parts (active explosives!) IN the room

Was smart enough to con his roommate into "dropping off" the backpack INSIDE the stadium

Was stupid enough to pick a dumb/ignorant/impossible-to-train/known-by-the-university-president-to-have-personalproblems "engineering student" that couldn't follow instructions/didn't follow instructions/wanted to find out what was in the backpack/wanted to see what kind of bomb his roommate built. (Then again, he just might have been a typical engineering student ......)
